This means we skip the WPRR Museum, but we're more likely to be able to go see that, and we simply must stop more often or we'll be so run-down that we'll do stupid things like fall asleep at the wheel. I have no desire to be another convention-travel tragedy.
We're busily packing the rest of the room, so I'll be shutting down soon and getting going. I hope the extra time we spent this morning reworking travel plans, calling hotels and such won't delay us so badly that we miss the train ride at Georgetown Loop.
